Empath vs ?
By: / Novice
Post # 1

So how do you know you are an Empath? I mean maybe you are just passive aggressive. people say they are Empaths. Okay are you really?

For me being an Empath has not always been a good or great thing I have had to develop a vary thick skin. I mean why would you want to be like this. People don't like the things you say, and you relate way to deeply too quickly in relationships. Your heart ultimately gets broken over and over again.

I mean people say it but I think if you talk to some of them for any length of time you will start to figure out that they are not and maybe are just some other version of crazy.

just curious.

I'm not an empath and honestly after conversing with people naturally gifted with abilities one can be envious except where empathy is concerned. Some consider it a gift and others a curse depending on the outlook they have. Experience is also a factor as empaths can place mental barriers through meditation in order to limit their empathic ability. I think a true empath would do well in jobs where they help people such as therapists as you can relate to the person better than a average individual. In regards to relationships being able to sense emotions would be a strain Im sure yet an empath would know sooner than most when they've found a truly good person. In the end any gift or ability is what you make of it.

Beer I even heard of the phrase empath I was using the abilities. It is not easy at first when your abilitys start developing; your always exaughsted and being able to feel it when others are in pain around you isn't always fun, but once you find a way to either make a barrier or control what feelings and pains you take on it becomes simpler. I myself haven't come upon many people who have called themselfs empath's or had the same abilities, I didn't figure out what they were till I used the "all powerful Internet" to look up what I was doing. But I assume like most "supernatural" (using this term because I can't think of another at the time) abilities people could become envious of them and act as though they have the same thing.

I am empath and always have been. I can feelother's emotions and sometimes they become my own if I'm not careful. Its good sometimes but bad at other times. I've laid down to sleep and started crying for unknown reasons. After meditating I was able to "follow" the energy to one of my best friends who lives an hour away from me. I felt not only emotion, but had physical symptoms as well. I felt my blood "boil" as if I was really angry. I felt super hot and my palms were clammy. After some deep breathing and and meditation (finding out who it was)... I called his sister to see if my friend was ok... Come to find out he got into a very heated arguement with his wife that night and was staying with his parents! It is not something to be taken lightly. The absolute worst place to be as an empath... a funeral home. Not very pleasent at all! I cry, not because someone died (actually, I accept it as another piece of that soul's journey is done), but because of the overwhelming sorrow of everyone else in the room.

also I too can "feel" the energy of spirits and trees and whatnot.I sometimes get an amazing head rush from the energy of old trees. Its hard to putin words why or how it happens or even how it feels to experience such a thing. It just happens naturally. Some people "see"... I "feel" :)

I am an empath too but because of the way I was raised and some other life experiences, I learned to block a lot of things. I still pick up on the emotions of others very easily, but it only effects me if it's my husband or one of my kids. Everyone else, I have to actively not care about. I don't know how else to describe it.

I agree that some say they are empath for the boost it seems to give to be able to do something 'special'. Well, it wasn't fun to feel the pain and emotions of others, and not being able to put up some kind of shield. I have people come around me for the calmness I bring them. But what they leave behind gives me headaches and upsets me for days, until I learned how to block it out. I haven't got that block perfected yet, so some gets through. But I am much better than I was before. It seemed to develop stronger as I grew up. And I am not so much in mysery over it now. But I still do 'feel' others, and tend to stay away from crowded stores and other places, as too many tend to cloud me into which ones are belong to me, and which ones are the feelings or troubles of another. Being empathic can be very helpful when helping others, but can also be a hinderence(spelling?) when there is a group of people with problems around me. And I am not one of the stronger empaths that feel everything. I am not sure I could handle that.
So yeah, i don't appreciate those who say they are when they are not. Blessed Be...

Great responses. Thanks guys. At 44 years old I still don't have this under controle. I only just recently was able to put a name to it so. I mean I have it mostly under controle but not always. Just wondering if any of you have found a way to rein it in. How?

I use meditating to controll it. I imagine spiders weaving a web of protection to stop emotions from coming through when i need to stop feeling others emotions and pains over mine. But It dosnt work of there is someone with a wry over powering aura around. But it does help my depression from getting worse.
